If this seat was not of the highest category, this price would be totally insane for an Euro Athetlics Championship. You can go to an icehockey or tennis match for 200 or 300 SEK (and that's not a crappy seat then at all) and for some athletics they charge you 1000 SEK? Even though it's the whole day then, I would not likely spend this money for this event because there are also lots of idle times in atheletics where nothing at all or nothing great happens.
No this was in the nose-bleed section just under the ceiling.
The very best tickets are for vips. I think the best tickets for sale were 1800 SKr or something, a day. The arrangers have been criticized for the ridiculous prizes and I don't think it's been sold out so far.

Raglefant? Dovregubbe?

For tennis, I have never paid more than 54 USD (for the US OPEN) and for RG, I only buy the cheapest tickets. Yes, it's very expensive for European athletics. When I saw the price of the tickets, I was very surprised. I wasn't in the ceiling, we were in the middle I think, it was ok to see everything

Congrats to Olsson

We'll just have to wait and see. There was a lot of pughing going on, tough to say if it was Som's own faukt that he stepped out of the track.
